Susy

Olive, (formerly known as Susy), had a fear of leashes, [when I adopted her], but she got over that right away. She loves to go on her morning speed walk along T Street (1.1 mile in about 20 minutes). And is eager for any additional walks throughout the day. I have a cat now, as well, and the two of them get along very well. They roll around and chase each other but it's always playful. Everywhere we go, people comment what an adorable dog she is. She loves walking in urban neighborhoods with people on the sidewalks, parks, home improvement stores and nurseries. And of course she loves to chase squirrels up trees.--Tom, Sacramento, 25Jun2024_(adopted 16Feb2024)

Snoopy(Sacramento)

Thought I would update you on Atticus [formerly known as Snoopy (Sacramento)]. He pretty quickly was house trained. He and Scheherazade stopped beating each other up after a couple of weeks and are besties. He has slept through the night in bed since day one. His barking has slowly become nearly non existent and he now barks when he hears something that he doesn't recognize; he's otherwise quiet. He has become an unmotivated office worker.---Michelle K., 15Mar2024. Adopted 19Jan2024.

Sally

Sally is doing well. The vet guesses she is now approx 5 yrs old. She was found wandering along a rural road, presumably dumped, and spent a couple weeks in a shelter before we rescued her through GGBR. Since we adopted Sally, she was spayed and had some dental work completed since she had some broken teeth. (Vet thinks she likely was chewing on a chain). She loves her walks and is an excellent tracker (the best in 43 years of owning bassets). I think she could match a bloodhound! She puts herself to bed at 6 pm and is out for the night. She has filled a huge hole left by our dear departed Luke. We call her the Ethel Merman of basset hounds because she can really belt out her barks when she wants her walks! __C.P. August 23, 2023

Scarlett

I've had Scarlett for almost 5 months. She still gets a little nervous when she hears a loud sound. She follows me everywhere and sleeps with me! I just love her. So glad I have her.---C.C., August 22, 2023
